Regular readers of Wye Life and this website will know we have a very vibrant photography group called the Wye Life Photo Corner. Currently there are 3,290 members. The Wye Life Photo Corner is managed by a group of lovely admins to whom we are eternally grateful. Their boundless enthusiasm and passion for the region and photography is, quite frankly, a joy to behold.
The group has been in existence now for several years and is growing steadily. Even during the coronavirus lockdown, ten more members have joined, sharing their lovely imagery of Monmouthshire, Herefordshire and south Powys.
Subject matter varies wildly and every week, the admins post a series of subjects which has proven extremely successful. The groups efforts are very much appreciated by Wye Life readers and visitors to the Wye Life Facebook page. Images regularly enjoys hundreds of likes and comments of appreciation.
It’s lovely to be looking at beautiful images but there is a much more important purpose to the group which probably even the contributors haven’t considered. “Each image, every photo, is a mark in time, a historical record of life in the Wye Valley and beyond. The importance of this can’t be underestimated,” says Wye Life Creative Director, Mark Roberts. “I am a keen amateur photographer, and every image I see on the Wye Life Photo Corner inspires me to take more. As an art director, creative designer and publisher, I have been around photography most of my career and I can honestly say the standard of photography in this group is exceptional – there are images appearing on the Wye Life Photo Corner that would not be out of place in National Geographic.”
